About the Center for Faith Studies
The Center for Faith Studies (CFS) was established in August of 2004 through the efforts of a visionary group of church members and donors interested in the concepts being explored. From the beginning, the Center’s mission has been to foster a culture of faithful inquisitiveness into the nature of God, the created world, and our individual and collective roles in it. The Center draws upon a variety of disciplines, including comparative religion, theology, the humanities, and the sciences in its offerings of classes, small group discussions, and large-group presentations.
